Patient Comments (2)
Lubbock, TX |
I am a family member who is very disgusted with how my mother is being treated. Does not read patient charts, told her to stop taking meds, next appt. didn't remember he had told her that. Doesn't care about patient.
Plainview, TX |
Very rude and condescending to patient. No compassion. I am family member who was with patient for support.
